Kestrel RT-1000 105 Road Bike-2016
Speed, performance, and comfort form a perfect union in the 2016 edition of the Kestrel RT-1000 105 Road Bike. Featuring an aerodynamic carbon fiber frame/fork, a Shimano 105 11-speed drivetrain, plus a rock solid complement of Oval Concepts components, you'll have means to fully enjoy your daily riding regimen.

A close cousin to the Kestrel Legend, but with more relaxed geometry, the RT-1000 frameset boasts Kestrel's aerodynamic DNA and is, therefore, plenty fast but also ensures greater comfort over longer distances. The geometry features a taller head tube for a more upright position to ease back fatigue, a longer wheelbase that increases stability, and a slightly sloping top tube for easier mounting and dismounting. The RT-1000 is constructed of Kestrel's Enhanced Modulus Hybrid (EMH) carbon, a combination of 800K and 700K carbon fibers. It's lightweight and stiff, with stiffness enhanced by the BB30 bottom bracket shell, yet also designed to offer a bit more compliance.

Shimano 105 11-speed shift/brake levers, derailleurs, and cassette assure crisp, precision gear changes and dependable performance year in/year out. The Oval Concepts 527 alloy wheelset with Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick 700x25 tires are smooth-rolling, dependable, all-around performers. Furthermore, the Prologo OneTouch Gel 2 bar tape plus a Prologo Kappa saddle deliver all the comfort you need for sheer pedaling bliss.

      Comments about Kestrel USA Kestrel RT-1000 105 Road Bike-2016:

      This bike was a bit of a hassle to set up out of the box for me. Routing those internal cables had me questioning my fitness for the task. The instructions were head scratchers,in particular hooking up the front derailleur was a big pain, and the gears in the back were way off. A bit more assembly @ the factory would make for a more user friendly product. Bring this to a friendly bike store if you have doubts.

      Once that was all sorted out though, wow. Light, smooth, crisp gear changes- it leaves my stable of aluminum bikes feeling like beach cruisers. And the price is amazing compared to the bike stores. You would get aluminum, with lesser groups for the same money there. I'm just super impressed and pleased.

      One very minor quibble. Would liked the graphics all one color instead of the mixed yellow/ red. But this bike is so good I feel guilty complaining about that!
